13 MARCH 2019 / The New York Times Styles Magazine Features SNFCC Landscape Architect Deborah Nevins

The New York Times Styles Magazine in its latest issue features a profile of Deborah Nevins, landscape designer of the Stavros Niarchos Park which is a part of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center, in Athens Greece.

According to the NYT Style Magazine article “In a collaboration with the Italian designer Renzo Piano’s firm for the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center in Athens, which was completed in 2016, she turned a 42-acre section of a former parking lot for the Olympics into a public green space with 1,500 olive, pine, almond and pomegranate trees interspersed with more than 300,000 perennials and shrubs, including Jerusalem sage and fragrant yellow-blooming coronilla . . . While contemporary landscape designers rarely have the name recognition of architects (as they did during the late 19th-century era that Edith Wharton conjures, when wealthy patrons were as obsessed with collecting plants as they were constructing mansions), Nevins is among the few who inspire reverence.”
